As Pearl Real Estate Network Members, our agents are trained to sell high-performing homes faster and at a higher price point. We have seen firsthand the power of Pearl Certification. We had a house whose appraisal came in low, threatening the viability of the deal — until we got it Pearl Certified! Not only did the house appraise for more, it went forward to a smooth close.
